Bugs are Hellby jellyislovely - Compo Entry
A bullet hell game built in Elm (http://elm-lang.org) a functional reactive programming language.
SPACE to start, AD to rotate, arrows to move, refresh the page to restart
Definitely didn't manage to achieve what I was going for, but got the basics of the gameplay down.
As you lose lives you go down from a hexagon to a triangle, after that you lose. And then refresh the page to play again because I forgot to add a restart button... :p
Also, apologies if you have issues with the screen resolution, I ran out of time to make it respond to different window sizes.
Interesting fact: The game is largely deterministic. So the enemies spawn in the same places for you and every one else so the scores are completely fair. Though bullets are more random.
Thanks, please enjoy and post your high scores :D
Mine so far is 129300.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.
NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.
MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.
MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
